Episode 22 was recorded on Wednesday, Sept. 24 2014.

Horror movie actress Jessica Cameron was awesome enough to grace us with her presence as we talked to her about her latest completed film Truth or Dare, which just so happens to be her directorial debut. We talked all things horror movie during the interview, which is fitting with October just around the corner. Unfortunately the recorder we use for the show had issues in the beginning, so not all of the interview survived and the show kind of jumps in on the middle of the interview. It was still good though, Jessica was really great about the whole thing. After the interview, we went into Our Week in Gaming, where Trevor gave a mini-review of ArcheAge, CJay talks about his newfound love of Tropico, and Brodie discusses  the current state of The Elder Scrolls Online.

Phablet Reviews: Before and After the iPhone 6

Bigger is better. No, wait, bigger is worse. Well, which is it? Apple’s newly supersized 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the jumbo, 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus are a marked departure for the company, which has clung to the same, small screen size for years. It has gone so far as to publicly deride larger phonesfrom competitors, notably Samsung, even as their sales grew to record highs. Tech reviewers over the years have tended to side with Apple, in general saddling reviews of the Samsung Galaxy Note – a 5.3-inch device that kicked off the phablet push in 2012 – with asides about how big the darn thing was. Are tech reviewers being fair when they review the iPhone 6 Plus? Here’s what some of them said today, compared with how they reviewed earlier phablets and big phones from the competition.

Elon Musk Hints 1st Person To Mars May Go Via New Brownsville Spaceport

If SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has his way, the first astronaut to set foot on Mars may begin his or her journey from the new commercial spaceport being built at Boca Chica Beach, just outside Brownsville, Texas. The Texas Tribune reported on Monday that Musk made the suggestion at the ground breaking ceremony of the commercial spaceport. The ceremony was also attended by Texas Gov. Rick Perry and various other Texas politicians and dignitaries, Musk’s desire to establish a Mars colony and even retire to the Red Planet himself is not a secret.

The UPS Store Will 3-D Print Stuff For You

UPS announced plans Monday to bring in-store 3-D-printing services to nearly 100 stores across the country, billing itself as the first national retailer to do so. With the UPS system, customers can submit their own designs for objects like product prototypes, engineering parts and architectural models that are then printed on a professional-quality 3-D printer made by Stratasys. Prices vary depending on the complexity of the object; an iPhone case would be about $60, while a replica femur bone would be around $325. UPS can also connect customers with outside professionals who charge an hourly rate to help produce a design file for the printer. It generally takes about four or five hours to print a simple object, with more complex items taking a day or more. The program started as a pilot at six locations last year, and UPS says those stores “saw demand for 3-D print continuing to increase across a broad spectrum of customers.”

Microsoft Dumps 1,500 Apps From Its Windows Store

Microsoft announced on its Windows blog Wednesday that it’s removed more than 1,500 apps from its Windows Store in a bid to clean up the store and restore trust with Windows 8 and Windows Phone users. Microsoft’s new certification process, in particular, asks for clear and accurate names that “reflect the functionality of the app,” more accurate categories, and differentiated icons to ensure apps aren’t confused with one another. Microsoft reached out to developers with apps that violated its policies; some agreed to make changes to their software, while those who were “less receptive” saw their apps removed from the Windows Store.
